As I was designing Kamerik, I was coming up with numerous character variations. I considered offering these as alternatives within the one font, but decided that I wanted to organise them into a new font, namely Talbot Type Kessel.
It’s become quite popular to offer alternate characters within a font nowadays, but I’m not sure how often they get used, and if there are several variations on characters, they don’t always work well in certain combinations.
I had enough character variations to create two distinctly different flavours of Kessel.
Kessel 105 differs from Kamerik in several obvious ways — characters with angled strokes such as the upper case A and lower case v and w, include Deco-style, sharp points at the apex instead of being cut square, and terminals on characters such as C and s are oblique instead of horizontal.
Kessel 205 has all of the above, along with some more exaggerated Art Deco tendencies, including lowered horizontal cross bars and a crossed capital W.
